(Not included in the chapters of Edward's book)
Author's note: This chapter is indeed not part of Edward's book but a part of the reality outside of it, which is why it's in italics, but it's actually quite an important chapter.
Dante sat down comfortably in her thrown in the underground lair. The Homunculi were sat around her, ready to be addressed and to do her bidding. Everyone was there, Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Pride, Sloth, Envy and the newest of the seven, Wrath.
Envy, Sloth and Wrath had just been back from a house infiltration; the blood was still warm on their pale skin, especially on Wrath's, who was covered head to toe with the thick, red congealing blood. Pieces of guts were tangled in his deep green locks but he was not so much bothered by it but more proud. The victim was non-the-wiser of the trick and his dying screams were music to Wrath's ears. To him it was like a familiar and catchy tune that you played over and over again in your head and couldn't be rid of for the life of you. But neither did he want it gone.
Oh how he longed to be back at that house again. The walls and floor stained in blood, that body was still sat in the once black computer chair and the golden eyes that stared blankly into nothingness. As his memory recalled, they were wide from those last moments of agony and the light from them had faded slowly as Wrath caught the last glimpse of pain in them as the light disappeared into the nothingness that the empty orbs should now be staring at.
The Homunculi fell silent from the telling of the last "hunt" as their leader glared at them, ready to address them.
'My children.' Dante began. 'Thanks to Hohenheim and the leakage of his latest method we have with us the seventh homunculus, who has just come back from his first kill, and by the looks of things it was a complete success. Am I right?' Dante looked on towards the blood-soaked Wrath.
'Of course.' Wrath grinned as he licked away some of the blood from around his lips. I made him explode like my "mother" Bryony Simmons. Reckoned I would sound good with a stupid name like Ira.'
'Now, now Wrath. Don't talk about your elders like that.' Dante smirked. 'Anyway, I would also like to congratulate Envy's work. Because he was able to stay close to Edward we were able to keep an eye on him. Tell me. How'd you do it?'
'I had to pretend to be a damn mental patient called Crow. But I was supposedly harmless so that bastard Dr House let me roam free.' Envy grinned with satisfaction.
'Did you get the prophecy I wanted? You know how much we need it.' She glared at him sternly.
'Of course I got it.' Ready to receive it, Wrath took out a tape recorder from within his body and handed it over to Envy, who passed it to Dante. Pressing play, she listened carefully to the victim's voice, which was ragged with his agony. Once it had finished, she smirked happily.
'Excellent work. Now that we have the prophecy, we can finally move forward in our plans. We shall soon own these powers! And humanity shall come to an end!' She cried as if she could already taste the victory.
'But what about "the greatest flaw"?' Pride interrupted. 'What if it proves to be a disadvantage to US?'
'Oh Pride. Don't be absurd! Whatever this flaw is it won't be a match for us once we have "the power of all."
'But we don't know what this greatest flaw IS!'
'Listen Pride! Don't you dare oppose me! Besides, as far as our plans go the only flaw we've had is that Edward Elric and now that he and his brother are dead we can have no further interruptions! And their father's no longer a threat to us. He'll just carry on running away like he always does. Like the coward he is.'
'What the brat, Winry and her own little worm? Does SHE prove as a threat?' Envy asked.
'No. But I'm sure Edward could stand to lose MORE loved ones. Right? But first we'll formulate the plans. THEN we'll take theirs lives. She'll set the pace for every other human to follow!' Dante laughed cruelly indicating for the rest to follow.
Humanity's only chance of survival was dead. All the homunculi had been re-united and Winry and her unborn child were happily unaware of the declaration of them becoming targets. The future looked bleak for humanity and yet it was unaware of these events. All the human race could rely on now was Edward's ragged last words.
"Beginning of all, but last to come. Joined by blood to the evil ones. Power of all but with greatest flaw…" that was the prophecy. Not much sense came with it; only time would tell could decipher its meaning. Only them would humanity know its fate.
Author's note: And now the story is complete! There WILL be a sequel because this last chapter gave the opening for one with this darling prophecy. Where it came from is my own imagination by supposedly Edward had read it sometime in the anime. You'll find out where in the sequel. I have almost finished writing that out in a notebook so now it just needs typing up for you guys, which I won't do just yet. I'm going to take a break from, what is known by me, as the "Coma Dream" series. I'm just giving myself a chance to write other fan fictions first before doing the sequel, to which I know will be a third story right after it.
Yes guys, you're looking at a trilogy in the making! Thank you for sticking with it for so long.
By the way, the sequel goes on from 13 years after this book so you meet Edward's now unborn child, with an interesting name with reason behind it. If you want to hear what the child's name is and the reason behind it now then I won't mind in telling you with a PM, although saying that my computer doesn't seem to like me doing that.
